    Fixing Small Holes In Bug Mesh?

    I've somehow developed a couple very small holes in my HH Exped's mesh, about 1/8th of an inch. It would be nice to stop them from getting any larger. What's the best way to patch the holes?

    A drop of hot glue works for me.

    I've also used this on pinholes in an ENO, and so far, so good...no tearing.

    clear fingernail polish is also effective.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    +1 for the clear nail polish. One coat, dry to still tacky, big drop plus a small over lapping (1/8") patch of the same material if you can extract one from another area.

    Another vote for Seam Seal. Worked well for me.
